Subject: The old books are a hundred times better
than any of newer ones- that's why they're so expensive when you go to buy them, they are so in demand. This book's illustrations and instructions are so pat, so understandable and well written. The newer ones are awful, I don't get it. Trying to read it in digital form sucks. The only way to truly get a feel for it is to have the actual hard copy, which I will probably seek a copy of very soon. This title says it is the 1943 issue, but I can only find a 1949 issue, or later "revised" versions.

Subject: A good clear book
This large book is laid out in easy to understand sections. The line art is clear and the use of colour blocks in or around diagrams helps make them easy to find.
I own a lot of vintage sewing books and this is definitely one I'd recommend to a modern sewing audience and especially for vintage reproductions or repairing and restoring vintage items.
